Beloved member of the Brotherhood. NCAA Tournament Champion. NBA Champion. Quinn Cook is officially in possession of all of these titles, as his Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday, 108-85. This man is an exemplar of dedication, hard work, and work ethic.
After going undrafted in 2015, Cook spent time with the Thunder and the Cavs in the summer league before signing with the Cavaliers in September, only to be waived late the next month. Six days later, he was acquired by the Canton Charge of the NBA D-League.
He was chosen as rookie of the year, averaging 19 points and 5 assists alongside 4 rebounds. Cook signed with the New Orleans Pelicans, only to be reacquired by the Charge. Cook joined the Dallas Mavericks on a 10-day contract and made his NBA debut, but returned to Canton again.
He later signed another 10-day contract with the Pelicans on March 19th, 2017, then again on March 29th, and signed a season-long contract on April 8th. On July 25th, he was waived.
Cook signed with the Atlanta Hawks for training camp but was waived as part of the team’s final preseason cuts. He signed a two-way contract with the Golden State Warriors on October 17, 2017, and was recalled to the team from their G-League affiliate, the Santa Cruz Warriors to fill in for an injured Steph Curry. He performed extremely well in Curry’s multiple absences due to ankle and knee injuries, scoring a career-high 30 points alongside 3 assists and 4 rebounds. As his productivity became consistent, the Warriors signed him to a two-year contract.
